Now, this is a recipe I created. It’s not yet perfect (still sweet for my liking). I wanted to bake muffins and I wanted cream cheese. So I thought, why not do like what those people at Mr Bean do? You know, those circular pancakes with cheese or other filling inside? Tokiwado, I call them.

It’s easy to make muffins when you set everything up neatly.

Using Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate Chocolate Muffin recipe as a base, I started improvising. And then, these were the results:

I added some batter, and a triangle of cream cheese (Laughing Cow)
Top it up with some more batter.
Bake till golden and fluffy.
Eat warm so that the cheese is nice and melting.

I still think the batter is sweet; I wonder if I can completely omit the sugar. I will try this again. For now, it’s wonderful enough. If you want to make these, try using 1/4 cup sugar instead of my 1/2 cup.
